Butterfly Birthday

Today I got to spend just a little time in my craft room...so I came up with this fairly simple card.
I say "fairly" simple because when using heat embossing and glitter, things usually get a little messy, and it did! Part of the sentiment didn't emoss completely so I had to go back in with a toothpick and glue to make the letters readable. But I love that fine glitter...it makes such a feminine card.




The border stamp used as the background is from SweetStamps called "Elegant Scrollwork Frame" and the sentiment stamp is PSX F-318. The butterfly stamp I picked up at a garage sale a few years ago...it is from Sky Kids Inc.
Other ingredients:
Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Powder, clear
Pastel Glitter Ultra Fine, Mint from Mark Enterprises 
Colored pencils
Card stock form my stash
